His Unpeacefulness Obama, recipient of a Nobel Peace Prize that only God knows why the committee awarded it to this stooge, notified Congress yesterday that 90 US troops deployed to Cameroon on Monday to assist in fighting Boko Haram. The eventual number of troops to be sent will be around 300; however, the troops are deployed at the request of the government of Cameroon, will only provide protection for airborne intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance operations, and will coordinate with Cameroon’s government. Well, that is what White House spokesliar Josh Earnest told reporters at press conference. Whether anyone has noticed or not, every time the US government enters a nation to “help” combat some “terrorist group threat,” it ends up in a sovereign government being “targeted” due to a ruthless dictator perpetrating oppression against their own people.
They are armed, but they are armed for the purposes of force protection and providing for their own security. They will not be in a combat role, but rather to provide force protection for — to allow these airborne intelligence surveillance and reconnaissance operations to commence.
When the president traveled to Africa earlier this year, he talked about how important it was for Africa — the nations of Africa to pursue a regional approach to the threat that is posed by Boko Haram. And what the United States has done is try to offer some of the unique capabilities that we have in the United States military to assist that regional effort.
